Lukas Rüegsegger at the Bau+Energie trade fair in Bern



Lukas Rüegsegger, Managing Director Timbatec Bern Branch, will speak at the Bau+Energie Messe in Bern about tenders for public buildings with Swiss wood. In this presentation the basics for public tenders according to GATT/WTO will be explained on the basis of practical examples.

Building with Swiss timber is the trend: the domestic building and raw material scores with ecological arguments, jobs and regional added value. This is also a good argument for public buildings. 

However, public procurement legislation under GATT/WTO prohibits a direct requirement for a specific origin. Nevertheless, there is a certain amount of leeway to be able to rely on Swiss timber for public buildings as well. 

These possibilities will be presented using two concrete examples as part of a specialist presentation block at the Bau+Energie Messe Bern. These presentations are aimed at public and private builders, members of building commissions, representatives of municipalities and authorities, architects, planners, timber construction engineers and timber construction companies. 

The presentation will take place on Thursday, 15 November 16:00-17:30, BEA Expo Bern, "Open Forum", Foyer 3.1.
